The Manufacturer Aftermarket Solution

Our interactive content solution helps equipment manufacturers create product catalogs, share critical content with their network, and sell aftermarket products.
Common Aftermarket Challenges for Equipment Manufacturers
For most manufacturers, selling a piece of equipment is only the first step in a (hopefully) long and fruitful relationship with a customer.
Once the machine starts working, your aftermarket processes and people have to be ready. The equipment will need to be maintained, serviced, repaired, and overhauled. Parts will break or wear out, the equipment may go through field upgrades by a variety of technicians, and in the meantime, engineering continues to make improvements to parts and assemblies.
But many equipment manufacturers encounter challenges within their aftermarket. For example:
- Ensuring that technicians are using the right parts catalogs and technical information to order the correct parts.
- Identifying if the as-manufactured product information is suitable for the as-maintained reality.
- Staying informed with product launches and engineering changes.
Your company faces all of these challenges while fending off competition, will-fitters, and the gray market, which all want to take your parts and product market share. In addition, your customers expect to be able to purchase products and get the information they need anytime, anywhere, in an easy-to-use and secure manner. To achieve these multiple goals at once, manufacturers need to leverage available technologies to generate more revenue and streamline business operations.
